Description

The simple lines of the front of this house are reminiscent of the Ranch style. The details and finishes combine to create a very handsome exterior, and this look and feel extends through the interior as well. If you choose to build the basement level, it includes three additional bedrooms, a recreation room, and a home theater.

After coming off the gracious front porch – where there is plenty of room for outdoor furniture – you come into a foyer space with double doors to a library on your right, open views to a stairwell straight ahead, and a formal dining room framed with wood columns on your left. Beyond the stairway is a spacious great room with a vaulted ceiling that has exposed box beams, giving the room some drama along with a sense of warmth. The room protrudes into the covered deck at the rear of the house, and its walls of glass windows extend to the vaulted ceiling, which – along with a glazed door – bring in an abundance natural light and outdoor views. A two–sided fireplace warms the room during cooler weather, as well as the breakfast area that is located on the other side.

From the great room, a pair of doors open into the master suite, which has sliding glass doors to the outdoor deck for private access. The room has a few different ceiling heights, with one portion that would make an ideal plant shelf. A two–sided fireplace is located between the room and the master bath, bringing warmth to both rooms. The master bath features a corner tub surrounded by windows, a separate shower, a private toilet room, two vanity sinks, and access to a large walk–in closet.

A large opening connects the great room to the kitchen, which features a large center island and plenty of counter space. A light–filled breakfast area has sliding glass doors to the covered deck at the rear. A centrally located powder room is located next to the kitchen, as is a desk nook that can be closed off with sliding doors. From the kitchen, a hallway leads past a walk–in pantry to a mudroom that accesses a laundry room, a three–car garage, and a bedroom suite. The bedroom has its own private full bath, and a door that opens onto a private outdoor deck.

If you build the basement level, there is a recreation room with a fireplace, a small wet bar, and a nook for a desk. A hallway at the right leads to two bedrooms, a full bath, a sauna, and a large storage room. The hallway at the left leads to a home theater room, a bedroom suite that has its own private full bath and walk–in closet, and abundant room for storage.
